November 19, 2012

Elvis fans joined "American Idol's" Skylar Laine for a night filled with music, holiday cheer and the official Graceland Lighting Ceremony. Check out Skylar's performance with new video and photos from her trip to Graceland.

Skylar, a Mississippi native like the king, spent the day touring Elvis' home and walked away with a new respect for the King of Rock 'n' Roll. She later made guest appearances on SiriusXM's Elvis Radio and greeted fans at Graceland.

"Elvis is going to be forever," said Skylar. "I love hearing his songs. They are so much fun and there's so much passion behind them."

During the lighting ceremony, Skylar welcomed the crowd and thanked the St. Jude family for helping her "flip the switch" on the beautiful Christmas display at Graceland. The crowd watched as the Graceland lights came alive for another year.  With her soulful country twist, she performed Elvis' "Blue Christmas" along with other Christmas favorites.
